This is my first attempt. I was going to carve these out of clay, make a mold and then cast them in latex to be duplicated. (see above) I really like the idea of using materials such as burlap, thread and twine to make these masks. This process (see below) will allow me to make them different every time. Thanks Grim Stitch Factory for the wonderful work you do and for inspiring me to go a different route.
